Good morning,

Thank you for you below email. However we believe we may have received this request in error as you have stated you would like information with regards to our "hospitals" - we are an ambulance service and therefore do not have any hospitals.

We shall therefore, close our file, however, should you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards
